The start to 2015 was the warmest ever recorded. But an unusually cold, and likely engineered, freak weather event in Peru recently killed some 200,000 alpacas in the southeastern lakeside city of Puno, while at the same time Norway, a Nordic country that normally has an arctic-like climate, got hit with a tropical storm that experts say typically only occurs “in the jungle.” reports that Peru’s unexpected cold spell brought such large amounts of snow and ice that the Regional Council of Puno declared a 10-day state of emergency. Though alpacas are generally accustomed to colder weather — the coldest day of the year in Puno, Peru, is July 26, according to WeatherSpark, with an average low of 22 degrees Fahrenheit — extreme cold and wind resulted in literally hundreds of thousands of these warm-coated animals perishing.

Just days later, Norwegian scientists reported on an unusual tropical storm event that dumped 10 centimeters of rain on the Norwegian village of Ogndal. The storm is said to have shattered records for the region, leaving meteorologists completely baffled.

“This just does not happen in Norway,” stated Norwegian government meteorologist Geir Ottar Fagerlie to national broadcaster NRK, as quoted by the U.K.’s Independent. “It’s not that we doubt the observations, but it is absolutely amazing. These are figures that you only normally see in the jungle.”
